Water Damage in Basement – Nashua, NH

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

In her typical morning rush, a Nashua, NH mother heads to the basement to retrieve her work uniform from the dryer before she heads off for the day. Little did she know that what awaited her behind the door would change the course of her morning. As she approached the entrance, she became alarmed by the high humidity and dampness of the carpets. She began to panic and reached for her phone to call for immediate assistance. When she opened the door, she was greeted by water damage in basement that contained many important documents and priceless heirlooms that she couldn’t bear to lose. Dealing with a flooded basement was not on the to-do list for the day.

Overcoming water damage in basement             

The very thought of possibly losing her most precious possessions sent her into a fit of panic and she called the only person she knew that could help her in this crisis, her mother. After a brief moment of tears and regret about not taking her mom’s advice about getting the hot water heater looked at sooner, her mom referred her to Soil Away’s emergency disaster cleanup services and reassured her that the team will arrive quickly to clean and restore any damage that may have been caused by the flood.
With a reassured heart she smiled to herself, ended the call with her mom. She quickly contacted Soil Away Cleaning and Restoration Services. Within no time, the restoration crew arrived to start cleaning up the mess. The IICRC certified technicians utilized powerful extraction equipment to remove the water buildup that made its way deep below the floors and into the wall panels. Once the excess water was removed, the entire space was sanitized and set up for drying. The restoration crew was patient, caring and intuitive to the needs of the customer. This helped transform a possibly devastating situation into a pleasant experience.

Drying a flooded basement

Let’s go behind the scenes to discover which steps were taken to eliminate the customer’s water damage in basement situation.
To achieve a professional level of cleaning and restoration, state- of-the-art equipment is used to detect the level of water damage to the site. Tools suchs as moisture meters and infrared cameras are used together to identify all affectes areas. Any moisture that is missed could lead to potential secondary damage in the future. Secondary damage is classified as mold growth, damage to framing, drywall, flooring and humidity damage to books, papers, and art.
After identifying affected areas, liquid water is extracted from materials. This is the first line of defense against second level damage like mold. Effective water extraction will drastically reduce the moisture levels in the property and contents thus increasing drying efficiency. Commercial dehumidifiers and air movers are then setup to remove remaining moisture from flooded materials. In some cases, specialized equipment is used to dry stubborn materials like wood floors, plaster, stone, tile, and cabinets.

Cleaning contents with Esporta Wash System

This customer had little to worry about in regards to her soft-contents and textile damages.  Soil Away’s Esporta Wash System was used to help salvage important sentimental items that could have otherwise been ruined.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
